Could You Give Me A Long Time Covid Here Are Just A Few Of The 200 Symptoms That Could Be Present

A prolonged dry cough and loss of taste and smell are two of the most prominent signs linked with Covid, but almost 200 problems have been found as symptoms of the long-term version of the virus, termed long Covid, including hallucinations, inability to yawn or cry, and diminished penis or testicle size.

Long Covid may be producing more symptoms than previously thought, according to a new study by a team of researchers at University College London (UCL) who have all had or have had long Covid. Study first author Hannah Davis explains: “The entire team is made up of Long Covid patients, which is what makes us distinctive and allowed us to uncover even the less publicly-known symptoms that long Covid causes.”

“Most people don’t realize how multi-systemic long Covid symptoms are, and how most patients experience dozens of symptoms across various organ systems,” says Davis, who has suffered from cognitive dysfunction, memory loss, and postural tachycardia (super-high heart rate after standing) as a result of long Covid.

“Long Covid is actually fairly recognisable given the enormous number of new symptoms patients have, the multi-systemic nature of these symptoms, and the recognisable symptoms – such as post-exertional malaise – that arent typical in other illnesses,” she says unless one is located.

Fatigue, post-exertional malaise (the exacerbation of symptoms following physical or mental exertion), and cognitive impairment (brain fog) were shown to be the most common symptoms.

The authors have now proposed a countrywide screening program for everybody who suspects they have lengthy Covid.

While this study did not assess the total prevalence of long Covid, the React-2 study published in June by Imperial College London estimated that more than two million people in England may have had long Covid, with around a third of those infected having symptoms lasting at least 12 weeks.

Tiredness, shortness of breath, muscle aches, and difficulties sleeping were the most commonly reported persistent symptoms in that study.
